Ways to Use Confetti on Your Wedding Day
There is nothing that gives us more joy than seeing our confetti in wedding
photographs. Especially the confetti shot, seeing the love on the newlywed's face
when they exit the ceremony and are getting showered by their nearest and dearest
in our lovely petals is just such a magical moment! This is the photograph that
you do not want to miss out on, having this memory in a photograph means you
can revisit that wonderful feeling time and time again.
But why restrict the confetti to the ceremony
exit shot? There are no rules when it comes to confetti, it can be scheduled into your big day right
from the very beginning through to the end. We thought it would be really
helpful to share examples of how this is possible so you can then decide which
moments you want to stand out from the rest.
Get your wedding planner book at the
ready as there are so many ways confetti can be used on your big day!
Top Tip: Always check any ideas with the venue first. You don't want to make
lots of exciting confetti plans to be then told that it won't be allowed.
The following ideas can be prepped the day before the wedding (depending on the
venue) or the morning of, just make sure you have allocated these jobs to friends/family
and they know exactly what they are doing. You want to be feeling as relaxed as
possible for makeup and mimosas at 9am!
A petal path leading to the
area that you plan to say 'I do' is just so romantic and creates a beautiful
background for photographs. You can opt for a mixture of large and loose
petals to create the look. Another
idea would be to send your flower girls down the aisle 5 minutes before you
enter to create a petal walk way for you. Our Flower
Girl Baskets are just perfect for this.

If you don't want to go overboard
on your table decorations, a scattering of petals around your table
centrepieces or even your cake table will help add a pop of colour and texture. Both our small and large petals work well for this and with so many colours to
choose from you will have no problems matching your colour scheme.

A confetti bar is really easy to style and can add to your venue
décor. It allows you to offer your
guests a variety of colours if you wish. It is a fabulous addition to your big day as
your guests will love to visit the bar and pick up their own confetti. One of
the best things about it is that it can suit any theme.

Getting Ready Shots
Start the fun early and gift your bridesmaids our Confetti Pops, they will make for great
getting ready shots and will get everyone excited for the amazing day ahead. You
can personalise them to match your
colour scheme and even better you can reuse them
so the bridesmaids can refill them to use for the confetti shot at the church.

first dance and what better way to get the party started! Arrange to have the
confetti fall just as your first song is coming to an end, it's a perfect
signal for all your guests to come and have a boogie with you.

Conclude the night with Confetti
Send everyone home on a
high! Have the bridal party line up outside with confetti cannons as
the guests are leaving. Exiting with confetti in your hair is a super way to
leave an amazing party, plus you will get some cracking shots of this
happening. It would be a lovely idea to send these images to the guests inside the Thank You cards.
